The best balance board ever made
Fitter, you've really outdone yourself on this one. I ordered the extreme balance board pro(EBBP) because I was looking for a challenge and because I've never been let down by a Fitter product. The EBBP met and exceeded my expectations by such a wide margin its kind of unreal.
First, the challenge here is through the roof. The EBBP pushes a person to the very limit of their balance, in every possible dimension. I've owned many many many balance boards, rola-bolas, spherical surf style balance boards, tengu geta, Fitter's own weeble boards, slacklines, even a similar rubber base balance board, but this is the ultimate challenge. The EBBP goes above and beyond other balance boards, not only in side-to-side / front-to-back balance, but by throwing in rotation, and even a bit of special sauce. The added twist to the EBBP is that the top board isn't connected directly to the rubber, but is loosely mounted with rings and a post. Its kind of hard to describe, but the result is amazing. It means the user really 'floats' on top of the EBBP, and this dynamic significantly increases the challenge.
Before I finish up, I'd like to talk about the build quality. The EBBP is really well made. Everything about its production is quality, and it looks great too. The decision to 'float' the balance board ontop of the rubber will also extend its life.
One aside, the EBBP requires shoes due to the grip tape on the top of a board. I hope sometime Fitter makes this an option, as I like to balance barefoot. Still, it works perfectly with a pair of vibrams.
I can't say enough good things about the EBBP. If you are a fit athlete looking for the ultimate challenge, look no further. If you are comfortable on a rola-bola, then the EBBP is the logical next step. Its worth pointing out that the challenge here is somewhat adjustable, and front-to-back balance can be disabled until the user feels comfortable with the side-to-side, rotational, and dynamic, aspects of the EBBP.
Anyway, I can't say enough good things about this board. Its the best balance board I have ever owned by far, thanks Fitter for really raising the bar on the whole sport of balancing.
